About Us

Upstairs Smoking Section is an art collective based mostly in Philadelphia, enlisting more than 40 artists semi-permanently at bars around the city including. We are always accepting applications and inquiries through Instagram, or our website.


Purchase original, one of a kind work, directly from the bartenders or online anytime.

Members have the privilege of practicing their technique through our weekly life drawing classes along with having a space to exhibit and sell their work to the public in a casual, laid back setting. Our goal is to provide a space for artists to grow, network, provide each other with input, and meet potential patrons.
